Red, White & Blue

For some reason, I'm always late getting my 4th of July cards made.  Fortunately, mail gets to my sis in about 3 days.  Just got this finished in time for ODBD challenge HERE to use 3 stamps on the front of your card.  I actually used 4.  The background is the wonderful ODBD Old Flag stamp.  I embossed in white & then sponged on Distress Inks faded jeans & fired brick.  The eagle is an unmounted stamp I've had for years & I have no idea who made it.  It's also white embossed & then cut out with Spellbinders Curved Rectangle.  I embossed the edge & then attached it to another piece of the navy paper, cut it out & mounted it with foam tape.  The sentiment is by the Oregon Company Peddler's Pack & the star is from Ann-ticipations.  I pierced the navy mat & mounted it to the card front with foam tape.
Mt Jefferson from Detroit Lake
Yesterday at the lake was fabulous--blue skies & sunshine--I always feel like I'm a million miles away (really just over an hour from reality--LOL).  Thought you might enjoy a few pictures.
Hope you've had a good week.  Thanks for coming by.
Hubby in his element!

Relaxing on my day off         


  1. great card Greta. And your photos of hubby and yourself are great. You both look so relaxed.

  2. Love your photos and card. Have a great 4th!

  3. Marvelous patriotic design. Love the large eagle image offset to one side! You pictures of your "down time" look so relaxing and in a breathtaking setting!

  4. Great patriotic design, Greta! Love the background scene, Greta! It must be really relaxing when you are out there!

  5. Your card is beautiful Greta, I love all of it. The lake loks wonderful!

    We are lucky enough to be able to go to lakes with no development and no activity here in Maine too. Whenever I feel sorry for myself about not living near craft stores, I think how lucky I am to be able to get off into a world with nothing but nature easily.

  6. Looks like such a relaxing day!! Your surroundings are so beautiful and very peaceful looking! Thanks for sharing the pics! Love your patriotic card- the flag bg is awesome!

  7. Love your 4th of July card, Greta! Beautiful distressing and design. And lovely photos of you and your hubby at the lake. Looks so tranquil and relaxing.
